Boston Marathon Bombing

Boston Marathon Runner Comes Home to Texas, Sees Second Explosion

Bomb exploded at marathon just a few moments after he finished the race, then a fertilizer plant blew up in his neighborhood when he got home


People keep asking Joe Berti if he feels unlucky.

A bomb exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon moments after Berti finished the race. Two days later, he was in his home state of Texas when he saw a fertilizer plant explode near Waco.

"I was just like, 'I can't believe this!'" said Berti, who said he had never witnessed an explosion before. Then he thought: "I just want to get out of here and get away from all these explosions."
